Americans Try To Place European Countries On A Map

:( :( :( :( At least the U.K. office didn’t fare much better with the U.S.

1. OK, in our defense, Europe is really complicated.

BuzzFeed

2. Turns out, this effort — which places several countries in the ocean — is one of the best.

BuzzFeed

3. A common problem was filling in all the countries that one knows and then realizing there’s still a half-dozen blank spots on the map.

BuzzFeed

4. This person’s nearly crossed-off list likely aided them in having one of the most complete maps we received.

BuzzFeed

5. Most of us went to college.

BuzzFeed

6. And yet, here we are (apologies to all of the Mr. Harrisses in the world).

BuzzFeed

7. At least we (sort of) know where Borat is from.

BuzzFeed

8. Borat is a really big deal here, I guess?

BuzzFeed

9. Borat is the president of Europe, right?

BuzzFeed

10. And MOST of us know where Russia is (and that it’s very cold).

BuzzFeed

11. I had never heard of the countries I, Am, Very, Sorry, You, Are, All, or Great before!

BuzzFeed

12. Sorry.

BuzzFeed

13. I find this impressive but have no idea if it’s correct. Cypress!!!

BuzzFeed

14. Second Poland is a hot tourist destination, I hear.

BuzzFeed

15. But not as hot as Affordable Vacations.

BuzzFeed

16. This tiny hand Turkey is having a really good time, and I hear mini-Poland is almost as fun as Second Poland.

BuzzFeed

17. “What is that?”

BuzzFeed

18. One thing is clear: Europe is overrun with meandering arrows.

BuzzFeed

19. The motherland?! Starting to regret not asking for names…

BuzzFeed

20. Moomins are really cool, but I’m pretty sure they don’t live next to the USSR.

BuzzFeed

21. Points for honesty, though.

BuzzFeed

22. Cold is a recurring theme, which may have had something to do with the weather in NYC today.

BuzzFeed

23. It’s really cold, and so is this entire area of middle Europe.

BuzzFeed

24. People wear fur coats there!

BuzzFeed

25. Shame is also a very common component.

BuzzFeed

26. The great GOTH vs. METAL wars of the 1800s are long behind us…

BuzzFeed

27. …but apparently war still plagues much of Europe (thankfully saving Benedict Cumberbatch’s house).

BuzzFeed

28. “Farms.”

BuzzFeed

29. “Your mom Romania.”

BuzzFeed

30. But seriously: When is someone going to do something about all of the fake countries in Europe?

BuzzFeed

31. :) :) :) :)
